Hep Quant: A new method to measure liver damage.
« on: April 06, 2015, 07:09:08 am »
I read about this in an alumni newsletter.  Dr Gregory Everson has come up with a noninvasive method of measuring liver health.  I was honored to be in a study under his direction.

About the inventor: Dr. Everson is currently Professor of Medicine and Director, Section of Hepatology in the Division of Gastroenterology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver, CO. He is the inventor of the HepQuant tests and technology, Founder of HepQuant LLC, and in conjunction with the Technology Transfer Office of the University of Colorado has filed intellectual property rights in the US, EU, Canada, and Australia related to this testing and technology.
